Hikes, paths and itineraries on the high mountain in Trentino’s Dolomites
Hiking is the queen of summer activities in Val di Fassa. Its paths’ network (signaled in red and white) is really dense and allows to explore every corner of the valley. You can choose both easy walks surrounded by nature and challenging itineraries that reach the summits of the "Monti Pallidi" (Pale Mountains). The routes suggested here, subdivided by typology, difference of level and difficulty level, satisfy all the hikers, from expert mountaineers to families with children. We disclaim legal responsibilities for contingent damages or accidents that may occur along the suggested paths. Suggested time for hiking: from June to the beginning of October. Have a look to the paths’ and refuges’ map. Check out also: rules for safety hiking in the mountains.

This pleasant walk, which is the ideal one for families, starts from "Buffaure" (2,035 m), offering an amazing view over the village of Pozza di Fassa. Mount "Buffaure" can be easily reach by means of cable car. Parking spaces are to be found near the lift’s departure station. The trail starts near the blueprint of the ski slope and winds towards Val San Nicolò.
The itinerary is a circular one, starting and ending next to Buffaure Refuge. Bars, huts and restaurants can be found in the area. The path is suited for families with children (from 6 years); it is not suited for strollers.
Description: this is an high altitude trail, winding across green alpine meadows, at the feet of most charming Dolomites’ mountain groups. From Pozza di Fassa ascend to Buffaure Refuge with the cable car and then walk up to Baita Cuz Refuge. Get to a grassy slope overhanging toward Val San Nicolò. Such a wide, sunny terrace offers a magnificent panorama over Latemar and Catinaccio, Vallaccia peaks and Val Monzoni. The route is divided into eight stages, each one underlying a specific aspect of Dolomites’ landscape. Every single stop enable visitors to observe the alpine flora as well as particular geologic phenomena, focusing on interesting naturalistic details.
Notes: in July and August the botanic oasis turns into a colourful flower-buds’ party. The whole area is peppered with saxifrages, rhododendrons, gentians, bluebells, pennyworts, nigritelle and edelweiss, together with marvelous species of wild orchids, having subtle colours and graceful stems and flowers. Here you can spot the so called "Gimnadenia delle zanzare" (the name literally means "Gimnadenia of mosquitos" and is due to its shape) characterized by a vivid pink colour and the less common "Orchidea Globosa", which is pink too. You can visit the Buffaure Alpine Garden by your own (with the help of an illustrated guide, available at the lift ticket-office) or, as an alternative, you can take part to a naturalist guided excursion scheduled once a week.
Stops: 1. "Prè de Cuz"; 2. The small rocks; 3. The small clearing of the larch struck by lightning; 4. Near the rocks; 5. The viewpoint of Maerins; 6. "Lastè de Buffaure"; 7. "La mandra de Pelicia"; 8. The corner of rhododendrons.
The trail starts near the blueprint of the ski slope and winds towards Val San Nicolò, throughout a wide grassland dotted with conifers, and comes back to the departure point. Because of some steep and exposed stretches, we suggest you not to walk off the marked track. In some part you also have to cross a couloir.
